Air Fryer Asparagus (So Easy) - Bearcookers

Air Fryer Asparagus is perfectly crispy, without needing a ton of oil and fat! In just under 10 minutes, you will have this awesome dish on the table. 

Air Fryer Asparagus is just another reason why we can’t get enough of the air fryer at Momsdish! From air fryer salmon to air fryer baked potatoes, this appliance makes food so crispy and decadent without all the extra calories! 

ingredients for the air fryer asparagus

  • 2 lb asparagus
  • 1 tbsp garlic parsley salt (adjsut to taste)
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1/3 cup parmesan cheese
  • Bacon with asparagus. Slice up a couple of strips of bacon and add them directly into the air fryer alongside the asparagus. The bacon will cook up wonderfully! In fact, bacon is one of the BEST things to make in the air fryer.  
  • A sprinkle of lemon juice. A spritz of lemon juice brings this dish alive. Lemon-y asparagus is a summertime classic. 
  • Seasoning salt. If you have a favorite seasoning salt you can’t get enough of, sprinkle it on! Just be mindful of not adding too much seasoning salt on top of parmesan, which is salty in and of itself.  
  • Dash of pepper. Like a little spice? Add a dash of freshly ground pepper. 
  • Smoked paprika. Something about the way asparagus and smoked paprika tastes together is irresistible! 

How to Make Asparagus In The Air Fryer

  1. Trim off the ends. Rinse your asparagus first and trim/snap off the ends. 
  2. Season generously. Liberally season your asparagus with parsley salt and olive oil. 
  3. Make it cheesy. After placing the asparagus in the air fryer basket (make sure to lay spears in an even layer), grate parmesan all over the top. 
  4. Air fry! Set your air fryer to 400 ℉ and cook the asparagus for 7 minutes.
